Primary school and Secondary school fees in SG is quite affordable..

Guess like.. <$20/mth? didn't really take note.. Coz it's really quite cheap. It's the textbooks and uniform other misc fees that make up the bulk of the cost.. and school bus etc.. All these >> the actual sch fees..

Depends on what stuff you want to spend on. there are $100/month Kindys and $1000 a month Kindys; $50/month swimming lessons and $200/month swimming lessons. $10 family meals at hawker centers or $100 meals at restaurants; trips to the bookstore or trips to the library; vacation to KL or vacation to Orlando.

But simply based on the higher COL in Singapore, I'd imagine it's cheaper to raise kids in Malaysia. Though, I must add that my Malaysian cousins had to go overseas for university, which cost them quite a bit.
